General Information

Public Service Announcements (PSAs) will be released daily at least eight hours in advance of fogging. These PSAs will identify the Insect Management Areas the ICB is planning to treat that evening, weather permitting. Until further notice, fogging will be carried out on a daily basis between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m.  Fogging will not occur when temperatures are below 13 degrees Celsius and/or wind speeds are not conducive to fogging. 

The insecticide Pro Malathion ULV® will be used.  This insecticide has been approved for use in Canada by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency. Pro Malathion ULV® will be used in accordance with federally approved label directions by licensed pesticide applicators. 

All buffer zones will be respected.Crews will ensure that the sprayer is not treating within 90 metres on each side of a registered property on the front street, side street, and rear lane. 

Property owners not wanting insecticides applied on or adjacent to their principal residence may register as “Anti-Pesticide Registrants” (APR) for the adult nuisance mosquito control program. Those who wish to register must provide identification that ties the registrant to the address being registered for a buffer zone. A photocopy or scanned document such as a driver’s licence or a utility bill will suffice as acceptable identification proving primary residence. Remember – a 72-hour turnaround time is required.


There are four different options to register:
  • In writing to Insect Control Branch at 3 Grey Street, Winnipeg, MB, R2L 1V2,
  • Emailing 311 at 311@winnipeg.caor faxing 311, and
